I was just trying to verify mine and google makes you download a file and put it on your server to be able to verify it. So how is it possible that some one else could have verified your domain?

yes thats what puzzled me as you have to use one of the below

1) HTML file upload
2) HTML tag - Add a meta tag to your site's home page.
3) Google Analytics - Use your Google Analytics account.
4) Domain name provider - Sign in to your domain name provider.

this is when and how

No, the server is very secure, just checked with upstream provider as the logs on the server dont go that far, and they see no breach of the server in the 4 years i have had the server

How they were able to verify it is confusing, maybe a bug on Google end at the time (that was a long time ago!) otherwise...

Either way, the fact Google doesn't care is shocking, they should really work with you to get it re-verified under your details.

I must say though the experience I've had with Google support is the opposite. They have been very helpful and very fast - I guess it depends on the service you use and the employees in that service.

yes they should as its clearly a violation of their policies that someone using their email program has attempted to steal control over one of my domains.
